'Think Bike' campaign launched

A £1.2million campaign to get drivers to look out for motorcyclists has been launched by the Government. TV adverts will show riders with neon signs attached to their bikes flashing messages such as 'new dad' or 'shy retiring type'.

May I also add

I've had accidents due to my own stupidity and other peoples and quite a lot of them are avoidable. There is one group of road users that can cause fatal road incidents that no-one seems to deal with and thats the aging road user.

My Dad had failing eyesite but wouldn't admit it (if your reading this dad its true because I made you give me a pillion one day to see how bad it was). Another friend was killed by someone with alzheimers who still had a license! And many more and I'm sure I'm not alone.

If someone reaches 70 they should have a proper medical to say they are fit to drive not just sign a form saying I'm fine thanks, and if someone has a medical condition that makes them unfit to drive the medical practioner should pass this to the DVLA.

Think Bike Campaign

I'll start by saying I'm not a biker but a middle aged car driver who's fed up that bikers are shown as totally innocent members of the community mowed down by Mad Max car drivers. I was on the North Circular on Sunday morning and spent most of the journey from Brent Cross to Hanger Lane slamming my brakes or swerving as numerous irresponsible bikers changed lanes and drove at speed between cars without due car for their safety or that of others. I have nothing but the greatest sympathy for bikers who are injured or worse but they must take responsibility for their own welfare and while the government campaign is commendable, it dose not give a true picture of the issue
